Patriots WR Julian Edelman (chest) is active for today’s game against the Redskins. He played through this injury last week and should be ready for his usual role today.

Recent Shark Bites

Patriots WR Julian Edelman is expected to miss "some game action" with the knee injury that's been bothering him all season, The Athletic's Jeff Howe reports. Edelman might need surgery but is expected back at some point this season, Howe adds. We'll continue to monitor the situation, but Edelman can be dropped in basically all fantasy leagues. His only useful fantasy game this season came vs. Seattle's league-worst WR defense. Edelman's absence figures to open up playing time for WR Jakobi Meyers and targets for WRs N'Keal Harry and Damiere Byrd. But your best bet is to avoid this struggling Patriots passing game.

Update: Edelman had knee surgery on Thursday morning and will miss “some period of time," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The Broncos-Patriots game has been moved to Week 6, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. New England was originally scheduled for a Week 6 bye. Denver was slated to play Miami in Week 6, but that game will now be rescheduled. Pull all Broncos and Patriots players from your Week 5 fantasy lineups.

The Broncos and Patriots are still slated to play on Monday night, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. New England had a 4th positive test on Sunday morning, but that evidently won't stop the game -- at least barring further positives. As always, this remains a fluid situation.

The Patriots had another COVID test come back positive on Sunday morning, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That makes it 4 positives over the past 8 days in New England. The team closed its facilities again, and Monday's game vs. the Broncos is "now in question," according to Schefter. We'll pass along any further updates, but Patriots and Broncos players should probably be on fantasy benches for now.

The Patriots list WRs Julian Edelman (knee) and N'Keal Harry (shoulder) as questionable for tonight's game in Seattle, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that "both should play." Plan to use them as you normally would in fantasy lineups.
